Asia Ortega: “‘The Boarding School. Las Cumbres’ is like ‘Game of Thrones’. You never know who is going to die”

Asia Ortega, Albert Salazar and Carlos Alcaide make up the leading trio of The intership. The hills with their papers Amaia, Paul and Manu. The reappearance of the latter in the lives of his companions in this second season, available at Amazon-Primeafter being unaccounted for during the first installment, will cause jealousy, suspicion and guilt to be unleashed in the group, as if the terrifying murders that devastate the forest that surrounds this particular educational center were not enough.

I suppose they will be a little angry. In other youth series they go from party to party and, on the other hand, in The intership. The hills They don’t stop suffering.

Carlos Alcaide: (laughs). Well yes. We have friends in other series and there is a point of envy. We are always suffering and they hit you.

Asia Ortega: We are the counterpoint of Spanish fiction.

You form a trio in which there is love, jealousy and guilt.

Asia Ortega: Amaia and Paul are more and more together looking for Manu and the touch makes them love each other. And while the infatuation increases, the guilt also increases because Manu, although he is not there physically, he is in some way.

Amaia, her character, is still the great leader, but with her weaknesses.

Asia Ortega: Totally. And with many doubts, because fear makes them shake even the safest foundations. We see Amaia overcoming difficulties, learning to think about things a couple of times before doing them, to ask for help and share information to unravel the mysteries that, luckily, will begin to be solved in this second season.

A season in which, by the way, there are more deaths, which are added to those of the previous installment.

Asia Ortega: The intership. The hills is the typical series in which you never know who is going to die, like Game of Thrones.

Paul is more protective than ever of his sister, Adele. Does he exercise that father figure that they have not enjoyed?

Albert Salazar: He protects her from another side, more as an equal. Adéle begins to flirt with drugs and that completely upsets Paul and makes him come to her defense. But Adele evolves, matures and becomes empowered, so we see them more as equals.

Her sister in the series says that Claudia Riera, who plays Inés, helped her with the French phrases she pronounces in the fiction. To you too?

Albert Salazar: Yes. Come on, I didn’t kill my colleagues with that! Claudia passed us a cheat sheet with voice notes and I went all day with the headphones repeating on a loop without stopping. And since we actors lived together, they got fed up with me.

The intership is a series of intrigue and horror, but don’t you think it’s mostly about friendship?

Albert Salazar: The beautiful thing is that, before the scare, the characters are talking about what they feel and we see them suffer, fall in love and relate to each other and how they save their asses. Because at the end of what El internado is about, these kids only have themselves and fight against problems that are beyond them.

Asia Ortega: We have a new management addition, Mikel Rueda, who likes to work on the link between the characters, their background, so I think it’s gone a little deeper into the relationships and the emotions that these teenagers who find themselves in such extreme situations feel.

When you shoot a horror series, do you suffer or enjoy?

Albert Salazar: It is a mixture of both. Because as an actor it is a joy to experience these situations, but the character is suffering from them. It’s funny, when the wheels happen to you many things inside.

Asia Ortega: There is a bit of wear and tear, because they are very extreme emotions. It’s like the tunnel of terror, it wears you down because it makes you tense, but you also laugh because it’s super funny.
